“In Exchange for your SOUL – 501” …Blog. [5/?]
*** (Matthew 16:26) For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
*** (Genesis 2:16-17) And the LORD Jehovah God commanded the man, saying, You may freely eat of every tree in the garden,
(Gen 2:17) but you shall “NOT” eat of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. For in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.
*** (1Samuel 15:22-23) And Samuel said, Does Jehovah delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as in obeying the voice of Jehovah? Behold, to “OBEY” is better than sacrifice! To listen is better than the fat of rams! [Acts 5:29]
(1Sam 15:23) For Rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and Stubbornness is as iniquity and idol-worship. Because you have “REJECTED” the Word of the LORD Jehovah, He has also rejected you from being king!
*** (Micah 6:8) He has shown you; O man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you; but to do justice; and to love mercy; and to walk humbly ‘with’ your God?
Can You think of another area… where one ‘Sells their Soul’…? There are MANY, but one of the easiest for Satan to intervene; seeing how it is Falsely Called: “Worship”…? How about the ‘So’ Called: “Christian [?] Music”…? Is the Holy Word of God, your ONLY reference for God’s Truth? If it is NOT, then you may wrongly call ‘Anything’: “Christian [?]” IF You are Truly Born Again, by the Holy Spirit of God, and student of the Holy Word of GOD, then You know about the “Psalms!” They are the “Songbook” of the OT Saint! Even a cursory study of them will leave ONE steeped in “Bible Doctrine! [Teaching]” Even Christ Jesus thought it Important enough to mention them in… “Luke 24:44-to-48!” Did You even notice this Fact? These [songs], “Bible Psalms”, are teaching God’s Truth! Surly the Pseudo Christian [?] so- called music, does NOT fit into those parameters.
*** (Luke 24:44-to-48) And He [Jesus] said unto them, These are the words which I spoke unto you, while I was yet with you, that ALL things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the “PSALMS”, concerning Me. [Jesus]
(Luke 24:45) Then opened He [Jesus] their understanding, that they might understand the Scriptures,
(Luke 24:46) And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behooved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day:
(Luke 24:47) And that REPENTANCE and Remission of Sins should be preached in His name among ALL nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
(Luke 24:48) And you are witnesses of these things.
(Luke 24:49) And, behold, I [Jesus] send the promise of my Father [God] upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until you be endued with [Holy Spirit] Power from on high. [John 7:38-39]
*** (Acts 17:11) And these were more noble = than those of Thessalonica, = in that they received = the Word = with all readiness of mind = and = searched the Scriptures = “DAILY” = to see if those things were so [or Not].

*** (2Timothy 2:3) Join me in suffering like a good soldier of Christ Jesus.
(2Tim 2:4) No one serving in the military gets mixed up in civilian matters for his aim is to please his commanding officer. [Christ Jesus]
(2Tim 2:5) Moreover, no one who is an athlete wins a prize = unless he competes according to the rules. [Isaiah 28:13]
*** (Amos 8:11) Behold, the days come; says the Lord Jehovah, that I will send a famine in the land; not a famine of bread nor a thirst for water; but of = hearing = the Words of the LORD Jehovah [The Holy Word of GOD].
Every Song is a Sermon… driven by “Harmony, Melody & Words!” Right AWAY: Pseudo Christian [?] Rap is… “NOT Biblically Christian”…! But a person living in a Garage: does NOT make that on “A Car”… ANYMORE than calling: Rap – “Christian!” So You need Biblical Proof…? Drums were NEVER used in the True Worship of God, the God of the Bible. FALSE Heathen Religions used DRUMS… to cover the ‘Cries & Screams’ of those Children Sacrificed to: False gods…! Many of the tunes of Pseudo Christian music are catchy and appeal ONLY to the Flesh. But ‘check out & compare’ their words: with Scripture and they… “FALL SHORT”…! Perhaps an example to make this ‘Point’…? Remember, when Lucifer REBELLED against God, he took his ability to make music… and as Satan, he retained that ability: But to EVIL…!
*** (1Jn 5:19) We know that we are from God: and that the whole world lies under the control of the evil one.
*** (Luke 4:6-7-8) And the Devil said to Him [Jesus], All this power I will give you, and the glory of them; for it has been delivered to me [Satan]. And I give it to whomever I will.
(Luke 4:7) Therefore if you will worship me, all shall be yours.
(Luke 4:8) And Jesus answered and said to him, Get behind me, Satan! For it is written, "You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him only shall you serve."
*** (Ezekiel 28:13-14-15) You have been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was your covering, the ruby, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the turquoise, and the emerald, and gold. The workmanship of your tambourines and of your flutes was prepared in you in the day that you were created.
(Ezek 28:14) You were the anointed cherub that covers, and I had put you in the holy height of God where you were; you have walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.
(Ezek 28:15) You were perfect in your ways from the day that you were created, until iniquity was found in you.
*** (Isaiah 14:11-to-15) Your pride is brought down to the grave, and the noise of your harps. The maggot is spread under you, and the worms cover you.
(Isa 14:12) How you are fallen from the heavens, O shining star, son of the morning! How you are cut down to the ground, you who weakened the nations!
(Isa 14:13) For you have said in your heart, I will go up to the heavens, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will also sit on the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north.
(Isa 14:14) I will go up above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the Most High.
(Isa 14:15) Yet you shall be brought down to hell, to the sides of the Pit.
Statler Brothers sing Turn Your Radio On
Gaither Vocal Band - I Walked Today Where Jesus Walks
Turn your Radio on and “Get In touch with GOD”…? How did People get in touch with God before Radio…? What about WALKING where Jesus walked, and felt His presence there…? Does that mean I have to go to Jerusalem, to feel His presence…? All of these “FALSE INNUENDOS”… are nothing more than “LIES”…! When ONE does “NOT” know what the Holy Word of GOD: Says… they will believe Almost Anything. That is how “Religion” works. The Scriptures teach… “One Mediator between God & Man [1Timothy 2:5]… but a False Catholic Religion says, “Pray to Mary, Jesus’ Mother!” So very much of these… “False Religious Trappings”… are integrated, into our ‘American Society!’ How does ONE get to know God…? Only by being Born Again by His Holy Spirit. That Holy Spirit comes to live within the True Believer: and enlightens their “Mind, Heart & Thinking… to ‘Know & Understand’… HIM!”
*** (1Timothy 2:5) For God is “ONE”, and there is “One” Mediator of God and of men, the Man Christ Jesus
*** (1Samuel 3:21) And the LORD appeared again in Shiloh: for the LORD revealed Himself to Samuel in Shiloh by the WORD of the LORD.
*** (1Corinthians 2:14) But the = natural man does “NOT” receive the things [WORD] of the Spirit of God; for they are = “FOOLISHNESS” = to him; Neither can he = Know = them; because they are spiritually discerned.
*** (Ezekiel 36:26) And I [God] will give you a new heart, and I will put a new Spirit within you. And I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you a heart of flesh.
(Ezek 36:27) And I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you shall keep My judgments and do them.
*** (2Corinthains 5:19-20-21) For in Christ God; was reconciling the world [any that would come] to Himself; by not counting their sins against them through His forgiveness]; and He has committed to us; the message of reconciliation. [in Christ alone]
(2Co 5:20) Therefore, we are Christ's representatives; as though God were pleading through us [to You!]. We plead on Christ's behalf: “[You] Be reconciled to God!”
(2Co 5:21) God made the One [Jesus]; Who did not know sin; to be sin for us [Christ our Passover]; so that we might become God's righteousness in Him [Jesus].

*** (Jude 1:17-18-19) But you, beloved, remember the words spoken before by the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ,
These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having “NOT” the [Holy] Spirit. [Romans 8:9]
Have You been into a ‘Christian [?] Bookstore’…? Besides the Bibles, I would NOT give you a ‘Penny’… for the “Entire Inventory!” Religious Trappings are simply from Satan. And are a ‘False’ substitute for His Holy Word. Why else, would Pseudo Christians [?] use False: “Pictures & Statutes” of Jesus! None of them are the “True Representation” of His Holy Word.
Any Mental, Emotional, or Validation of such a FALSE Picture of Jesus… is TATAMOUNT to False Worship..! Simply LOOK at the Worship of “SPORTS & HOLLYWOOD” People Today...! Why else does ONE buy Nike or any other Brand...? They are Brainwashed! NONE of those False Religious Trappings: ‘LOOK LIKE’ Christ Jesus, as Described in the Scriptures... John 20:27, Zechariah 12:10 or even Revelation 5:6...?
*** (Deuteronomy 4:15-16) Therefore take good heed to yourselves, for you saw no kind of likeness on the day Jehovah spoke to you in Horeb out of the midst of the fire,
(Deut 4:16) lest you act corruptly and make yourselves a graven image; the likeness of Any figure’ the likeness of MALE or FEMALE,

*** (1Jn 2:21) I have not written to you because you do not know the truth, but because you do know it and because: no Lie –> comes from the Truth. [John 17:17]
*** (Hosea 10:12) Sow to yourselves in righteousness; reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground. For it is time to seek the LORD Jehovah, until He comes and rains righteousness on you.
